There was once a time when ratio free private trackers were a rarity in the BitTorrent scene. Even the few that existed were pretty hard to get into. The times have changed – there are plenty of ratio free trackers out there and it’s extremely easy to become a member of some of them. This post lists 8 such trackers that are currently open for public signups. Most of the sites mentioned have been reviewed before on FILEnetworks Blog and the links to full review have also been included.
Although the title of the article says ‘ratio free’ trackers, we’ve included two sites that do have a ratio system; ArenaBG and RARBG. Although there is a ratio system present on these sites, they do not enforce any mandatory ratio rules or requirements. Most of the trackers listed do not require users to maintain a global upload:download ratio. However be aware that you may need to seed a torrent for a minimum time period – always check the rules and FAQ pages of a tracker. Keep in mind that ‘ratio free’ is not your ticket to do hit and runs at will.
